I love it how people "wait" ... nevermind the information that's in the HWDB, will be .. guess what? WHAT'S ALREADY IN THE WIKI!
GET OFF YOUR FUCKING FREE-LOADING ASSES AND HELP!!!!!
Yes, the hardware supported is limited, much moreso than what Linux currently supports... but unless you are willing to help do your own leg-work on supporting more devices, _BUY WHAT'S LISTED IN THE WIKI!_
is that too hard a concept for all of you?! REALLY?!
Thanks for the nice words,
Checking the Creative web site you soon find that at least one of the sound cards referred to in the wiki isn't supported any more. It is not very good to recommend unsupported hardware for a system you want to be used by many. By your attitude you probably don't.
It seems like you need to find a place to live out your aggressions. Perhaps a boxing gym will lighten you up a little.
